When a Brooklyn school administrator decided to let off some steam, she used taxpayer money to plan a booze-fueled getaway with her “partners in crime.”
During the drunken and high escapades, The New York Post revealed that Diana Rendon and other school administrators used taxpayer money to plan a raucous hotel-room party during an upstate curriculum planning retreat. Video footage shows Rendon in a drunken state falling off of a bed as other drunken school officials party around her.
Watch the video footage of the assistant principal of Progress HS for Professional Careers in Williamsburg, Brooklyn jumping on the bed with other educators while burning taxpayer money at the suburban conference center…
Although the video footage is only 13-seconds long, you will see the 33-year-old Rendon fighting to balance herself before she falls off the hotel bed. Another woman drunkenly shrieks while a male party-goer shouts, “Oh s**t!”
During the booze-fueled hotel party, the small room was packed with educators, who brought their own bottles to ensure the party lasted all night. Loud music blared and the taxpayer funded a strobe light that flashed from the corner.
Because the Brooklyn educators were so intoxicated and loud, the hotel management called the police. No one was arrested.
The party raged on late May 16 to early May 17, 2015 during a so-called “planning retreat” at the HNA Palisades Premier Conference Center in Palisades, New York.
Almost every school staffer at the conference attended the event – about 60 people – and all food and lodging was paid for by you, the taxpayer.
One school staffer, who begged to remain anonymous, said they were partying with teachers when Rendon showed up and crashed the party.
“I was surprise that it was okay,” the staffer remarked.
When she entered the party, Rendon was carrying a large bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey.
“She walked up to me, put it in my mouth and poured it down my throat, saying, ‘Drink! Drink! Drink!’ ” a source said.
“She was drunk. I was drunk. Everyone was drunk.”
The school refused to punish the drunk employees claiming it “does not have regulations concerning [employees’] alcohol consumption off work time.”
On Friday, Rendon denied allegations that she was drunk during the party – claiming she was pregnant in May 2015.
“I don’t know how a seven-months-pregnant woman could be jumping on beds and drinking,” she said.
But her baby was born in September 2016, which means she didn’t get pregnant until December, which was six months after her debaucherously party.
Teachers were afraid to report Rendon’s drunken misconduct because her administration ran a “culture of fear” using bullying tactics to silence her underlings.
“She is the one is charge. Whatever she says goes.”
At the end of the 2014/2015 school year, nearly 25 employees quit working at the Brooklyn school.
“It was posed as an optional weekend of professional development,” one employee said of the retreat. “But if you refused to go you would be retaliated against in the form of negative observations.”
Should Diana Rendon and the other Brooklyn school employees be fired for partying on the taxpayer’s dime?
